webke gone 5 mins in
matai has an injured hip, trying to play on
bell break off beaver left tate behind orford kicked, no chase from our boys, then we gave away a penalty - cant win if we keep letting them out of their zone that easy
watmough in - good baall from orford matai took a good intercept off lockyer a few plays earlier very frenetic pace so far, lots of attacking plays orford converts 6 - 0
Going by stats, Matai and Watmough are going great guns early on. The boys are starting to go off the rails, the Broncos have scored 14 consecutive points to lead 14-6.
24-6 last time i looked 2nd half
Hard luck Manly. Sea Eagles go down 32-10. Sounds like Monas had a solid game, so to Matai and Watmough. Pretty tough going considering 3 players backing up from city-country, struggled for metres when we had the ball.
monas, beaver and watmough our best. our back 5 were solid the rest went missing
first 3 tries from errors, pi$$es me off!!! watmough the usual 2 drop balls a game, and both resulted in tries. matai needs to learn to pass to his outside man, dont think he knows how too. dunley sucks, we look much better with monas on the field.
Choc's hands continue to cost us big time, thought Glen Stewart had a good game looks to have bulked up a bit.
imo Glenn Stewart is a better bench option than Willow when at full strengh. His defence is just as good, he offers more in attack. A no brainer really.
I agree with the Willo bit. We spent most of the game trying to get out of our territory and they were making huge metres each set. I thought our defence was generally good tonight - but weight of possession just got us down. We need to take a game by the scruff of the neck and throttle it.
Willow had one of his poorer games (may be due to lack of match fitness) the way he looked to slingshot Locky for his try did not help. I think Stewart may have leapfrogged Cuthbo on tonights performance
Cuthbo got very little game time. He did a few got things but needs time to get his confidence and settle into the game.
How bad was Orfords kicking, was farking terrible imo. The brisbane back 3 gobbled nearly every kick up on the full.
agree garts - he was off tonight big time. We should really be looking to monas on the 5th when in our own half - his strength is long kicks that dont go to the man, one of the best. Orfords strength is shorter kicks. With some input from the coaching staff we should be able to have the best kicker there for 80% of the kicks.
